Product Description

This plan dates from 1811 following a survey undertaken by G. Brown. The faint outline of his survey grid marked in chains can still be made out at the top of the plan (1 chain = 22 yds).

The Act of Parliament initiating the building of the Caledonian Canal was passed in 1803 and the canal was completed in 1822. This map shows the intended route of the canal from Kytra into Inverness as a pencil outline.

The text at the bottom of the plan lists the ground that will be occupied by the canal as a consequence of its construction.
